Amazing Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This places was such a wonderful retreat that really lets you escape from life as soon as you walk in the door with the way the decor complements the natural setting that the large windows embrace, creating a calm tranquil feel. There is nothing like falling sleeping with the sound of the ocean in the background and waking up to beautiful sunrises over the ocean each morning. We loved how easy it was to walk down the street and access a private beach where so many locals come to surf, paddle board and enjoy the beach. Robert and his wife were great hosts and made finalizing our arrangements so easy. They were responsive and extremely flexible in working with our schedule regarding check-in and check-out. Also, I was so pleased when they offered to a provide cleaning service during our stay at no extra charge. Given how long we were going to be staying I was already anticipating needing to ask if I could pay extra for this and they offered before I could even get to it- truly the sign of a fabulous host when they can anticipate your needs without having to say anything. Despite being from the area I look forward to finding a time to come stay again in the near future.

We so enjoyed our stay at Opal Cliff drive. The home was cozy and inviting not to mention beautiful in every aspect. The views were amazing from every angle. We hope to have the pleasure of renting from Robert again.

We had such a comfortable and relaxing time. This is a home which has been designed with an appreciation for life. My young adult son commented upon walking in for the first time "Mom, We always have to stay here " Lol! And I look forward to doing just that if/when we return to Santa Cruz. Thanks Robert for the opportunity to experience this beautiful home!

Great Ocean Front Home, Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this home was a lovely Monterey Bay experience. Half a mile (walking) from downtown Capitola, with all of its shops and restaurants. Pasatiempo Golf Club is an easy 15 minute drive away. The home itself is truly lovely. Right on the cliffs above the ocean, with a key to a semi private beach. This home has a gorgeous outdoor backyard space with furniture, umbrellas, fireplace, and heaters (for those foggy cool nights). Inside, its a super comfortable beach house......Wifi, cable, beach towels, and a well outfitted kitchen. We wanted for nothing. Looking forward to returning......

Elegant Beach House with Gorgeous Views!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly an exceptional beach house! Our family (w/ 3 teenage girls) just got back from an amazing stay at this lovely home. The amenities and furnishings are top notch! The bedrooms and living areas are decorated with lovely artwork, beautiful furnishings and luxurious bedding. The kitchen is stocked with high end appliances, beautiful serving dishes and table top decorations. The kitchen, living room, master bedroom, master bath & second bedroom have stunning views.

The neighborhood is peaceful and serene and is perfect for relaxing but yet very close to exciting Capitola. It is less than a mile walk into town for shopping & dining. We enjoyed Shadowbrook, Margaritaville, Avenue Cafe', Gayles and a Wednesday evening outdoor concert.

The private beach, with gate access 2 homes down, is fantastic for surfing, paddle boarding, bogey boarding & beach lounging. We could check out the waves and watch family members in the water from the backyard.

Beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels & beach bags were available to use. The owner was great to work with and helped to make our stay wonderful.

my shoulders and stress dropped the minute I walked outside to the natural beauty of this property

  • 5 of 5

We used this property for a family get together and celebration for my son's graduation from UCSanta Cruz. The peaceful sounds of the ocean surf, the private beach access, the surfers you see while looking out any window make this a home you'll not want to leave. The kitchen is stocked with everything and more than you would ever need. We cooked most of our meals in the house so we could enjoy the property to it's fullest. It's by far the best restaurant view in the area!. We did eat a few late breakfast meals on the beach in Capitola which is an easy walk away. There are many, many local restaurants to try if you don't want to cook. Shadowbrook Restaurant nearby is wonderful as is a short drive to Gayles Bakery for some of the best breads and pastries you could ask for.

My favorite spot for coffee in the morning is upstairs on the balcony looking high over the sea. The owners are very clean and keep everything perfect. They also have washer/dryer on site to help keep things like you'd like at your own home.

This house is everything the description says plus much more. I highly recommend it and the location.
